    It is not fat, just obese. Unless Nikon is having a promotion. Anything can happen.

    Guess very likely that they may priced it in between 50mmf/1.4 and 35mmf/1.8 lens...!!!
    NikonUSA $219 x 1.23 = SGD 269
    NikonSG pricing sure more than $269 to $3xx

    How does the AF motor affect filter ring?

    I hope there will be a promotion of buying the 50mm f/1.8G and you get to purchase the D3x for $99.90 or the D7000 for $19.90.
    A purchase with purchase promotion.
    LOL

    After what you've indicated above, I presume it'd be priced just slightly above 35mmf/1.8 lens as SG always $$$-priced lenses much higher...!!! ......
    Anything that can take pictures...happy already lor...(..but...Hasselblad_H5D-50 as my Workhorse)

    AFD 50mm = 52mm ... Adding a motor will thus enlarge the body size and hence the front filter size need to enlarge also.

    I think this one should be the cheapskate motor version right? I remember there are 2 versions of motor.

    I don't think so, since it's an FX lens. It definitely looks like it's much stronger than the 50mm f/1.4. Just my personal opinions.

    I don't think it's much better than the AF-D version. I speculate that it will be slower to engage focus (AF-S primes seem to focus slower than AF-D ones for some reason, especially on higher end bodies). Might be sharper, but I doubt it will be much sharper. Moreover, it's almost twice the price of the AF-D version...

    Although the AF-S primes are slower, they are still sufficient to lock focus accurately under dim light. Have been using it for shooting weddings and have no problems at all.
    For me, I choose the AF-S because of their IQ, not AF speed.
    I'm not sure how fast the speed you want as a hobbyist or for assignments.

    It's just something I'm pointing out. Whether or not the sharper results are worth that US$100+ more (in fact, it's almost 2x the price of the AF-D) is up to everyone to decide. Personally for the 50mm I'd stick with the AF-D versions, unless the 50/1.8G is really outstanding. So far I don't see many reviews saying that the 50/1.4G is significantly sharper than the AF-D version. For the 24 and 85, the G versions are definitely sharper, but for the 50 I don't think there is much of a difference.

    ? why you think no difference?

    Actually from the information I have now, it seems to be a big difference as the optical formula is TOTALLY different. The lens changed from 52mm filter thread to 58mm. They added aspherical element. Looks like a complete overhaul. I will be VERY dissappointed with nikon if they cannot make a better lens after overhauling the optical formula and increasing the size significantly.
